An important research finding regarding parenting practices of both victims and bullies is that such parents have poor and deteriorating relationships with the school over time. These parents are rarely aware of the bullying and victimization on a day-to-day basis (Olweus, 1993). Furthermore, parents rarely respond in any concrete way when they find out about bullying at school. Schools, on the other hand, tend not to contact parents of either victims or bullies unless the bullying results in severe physical injury (Olweus, 1991, 1993).

A school that attempts to address serious physical victimization may need to change a different aspect of the school’s climate from a school that struggles with weapon threats. Most studies have focused on a very limited set of victimization types. Therefore, many of the questions we raise about the interrelationships among forms of school violence could not be addressed well. In the present study, we examine a wide range of within-school violent acts; consequently, we are able to explore these issues.

These guiding questions revolve around how different forms of victimization are associated with one another, or how they are grouped together in real life. , verbal, physical, or sexual).

For example, there may be certain types of sexual harassment behaviors that are more associated with verbal threats, and other forms of sexual harassment that are more associated with physical assault.
